For free, takes a little water, but still floating, great for learning volcanos

With a bit more work on the nose, it would totally fit for todays freestyle.

I have switched to the Euro Pin system about 5 years ago, after much testing and being certain that indeed this is a better system. However, I have used the mast foot supplied by Fiberspar, which was a similar mast foot to the original Streamlined foot. As of late I have had a rash of pins shearing at the base of the euro pin. This euro pin is a female thread with a male bolt that screws into it. I am alarmed at the amount of bolts that are shearing all of a sudden. After discussing with Dave Dominy of Streamlined, he found the cause is the plastic on the top piece of the imitation mast foot, flexes under load, and pointloads the bolt. With repeated instances, the bolt eventually shears. Blue arrow points to problem area.

Interesting simulations about the mast extensions. What happens, if you put the holes lengthwise, sidewise, or you use “Ring And Collar”.

The highest strain reached, if the force and leverage is the same:

Pin-hole across: 14,94
Collar: 9,54
Pin-hole length wise: 7,97
